    Are you going to go rimless and just cover the filtration areas or do you want the rimstock?

    The biocube skimmer with the airstone is junk IMO. The HQI biocube has a chamber with light for macro which you can easily do on the stock BC29. Or just add live rock rubble like I did and take out the bioballs.

    I wouldn't even put rubble back there. I think that itself is also a detritus trap. I do have 3 mangroves growing out of the back of mine right now. Other than that I have a heater, the pump, controller probes, and a media bag with carbon/GFO.

    I like the rimless look of mine. I don't have the filter area covered. I don't really think my tank stinks....but it could be just me.

    But if you want HQI parts, I have the rimstock (cut before the back filter area) and the covers for the back chamber. I even have a mesh screen top that fits on top of the hqi rimstock to keep your fish from becoming fish jerky.
